Whoopie for Whoopie Pies

We couldn’t be more excited to share these scrumptious little Whoopie Pies with you! Aren’t they cute? We have three new mixes in stock: chocolate, ginger spice and red velvet – perfect for any celebration or just because. These nostalgic New England favorites are boxed up in a handy-dandy mix made with the finest ingredients available including Nielsen-Massey vanilla and Callebaut cocoa. One bite and you’ll hollar whoopie! A filling recipe is included, but we love the idea of mixing it up and trying flavored fillings – pumpkin, lemon, berry – the sky is the limit! Of course, you need fancy packaging – we like using glassine envelopes (just trim the edge with craft scissors for an extra special touch – see photo above) and tying them with retro striped twine from our new line, Divine Twine. Brown Sugar is featured above – but nine other delightful colors are available. Or, have you seen our new and perfectly spring-y berry baskets? Check them out below. These 1 pint baskets are made from wood and feature a contrasting trim in an array of colors. A fresh way to present a little gift for a wedding, baby shower favor, or to welcome your guests to an event – and for filling up with Whoopie Pies!

Stamped with Love

February 1st! Goodness…Valentine’s Day is a mere 14 days away and we couldn’t be more excited to share some unique chocolate treats with you ! These premium dark chocolate heart stamps are a perfect little adornment to a postcard cookie. Simply use a rectangular cookie cutter to cut-out shapes from a batch of our yummy No Fail Sugar Cookie Dough. Then use royal icing to decorate the cookies as you wish (a love letter, perhaps?) and affix the stamp with a dab of icing, just as you would a traditional postcard!

Also new to fancyflours.com are these lovely dark chocolate hearts with red and white scroll patterns. These little treats are so beautiful and could be served in a small dish on their own or could be used to jazz up some store bought (or handmade, of course) cupcakes. The hearts are about 1 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ so they are the perfect match for mini or regular sized cupcakes. The scroll is made from cocoa butter based chocolate transfer sheets, which is another trick you could try on your own. View our chocolate transfer instructions for details on working with these inspiring sheets – just another tool to add to your baking repertoire.
